In Florida, a good lawn sprinkler is about as important as a wide-brimmed hat for sunny days and a salt-rimmed margarita for sultry nights.
Here are several models of lawn sprinklers that are ready to give your grass the perfect watering.
This oscillating lawn sprinkler has an integrated flow control dial that allows you to customize the range of the water streams. It’s perfect for stretches of a lawn that have unusual dimensions. Plus – at full range – it can cover up to 4,200 square feet of the lawn.
Sure, this sprinkler can cover a lot of grass, but we love it because it’s designed to deliver a clog-resistant spray even when using reclaimed water or water from ponds and canals. The all-metal construction will hold up to wear and tear better than competing models.
Easy to Clean
This model uses the professional-grade impact sprinkler that Rain Bird uses for its automatic systems – here it’s used in a more portable fashion. The 8-inch spike is stainless steel and can be sunk anywhere in the yard – even in hard-packed dirt or clay.
Curious how a tractor sprinkler works? It’s pure genius. Just lay out your hose in the pattern you want the “tractor” to follow. The hose becomes the track. An auto-shutoff feature stops the watering when the end of the track is reached.
The ruggedness of this sprinkler stands out from the rest of the pulsating models. It features a rust-proof metal head and a weighted base to give it additional stability.
